The Queen Might Be Giving Harry And Meghan A Very Generous Wedding Gift
When people get married, one of the hardest parts about being a guest is having to rock up with a gift. That's because a wedding present can't just been a bunch of flowers or a bottle of wine - no, it's got to be sentimental, classy and, above all else, a bit spenny.
Even after you've had to shell out on travel, a hen or stag do and a new outfit for the big day, you're expected to loosen the purse strings even more for cut crystal glassware or a contribution to their honeymoon fund.
However, let's just be grateful that at least we don't have the mammoth task of finding the appropriate gift for the couple who must have everything: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
One person who does have that challenge on her hands is, of course, is the Queen - who's apparently going big.
According to royal finance expert David McClure, Harry and Meghan will receive their very own stately home from ol' Liz.
He explained that it's likely she'll be doing what she did for Harry's brother, William, when he tied the knot with Kate Middleton.
For their wedding, the Queen gifted them Anmer Hall, which reportedly underwent extensive and expensive renovation work before the couple could move in.

It's thought that Harry and Meghan will be receiving York Cottage, which is also in the Queen's private Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, like Anmer Hall.
David told News Corp: "It's their sanctuary, it keeps them sane. William and Kate would do that with Anmer, they'd just disappear.
"William got a place on the Sandringham estate at Anmer and my hunch is that if he (Harry) gets a place in the country, he and Meghan might want to be nearer London and as such somewhere in the Home Counties might be preferable."
And while the Queen's wrapping up a new home for the couple, William's no doubt getting a speech ready - having been asked to be Harry's best man.
Wills said he is 'honoured' to be chosen, and is looking forward to supporting his brother on his big day.
As best man, he'll be required to carry out formal duties on the day, including keeping the couple's rings safe ahead of the ceremony.
It's looking like a busy few weeks for the Duke of Cambridge who will be juggling a newborn, two other kids and all the arrangements for the wedding of the year - we wish him all the best.
Wonder if he'll find time to buy a wedding present, too...
